When Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) signed copies of his book at the Colonial Inn on Saturday in Concord, he was greeted with people holding signs urging him to support environmental legislation and campaign finance reform.

League of Women Voters President Paula Vandever told that they did not want to be considered protesters: “We are not here to protest Senator Brown, but to urge him to support issues important to the League such as campaign finance reform, health care, reproductive rights, reducing CO2 emissions.”

A Roll Call reporter counted about a dozen protesters on the lawn across the street from the inn.

The online version of the article mistakenly said the book-signing was in New Hampshire and not Massachusetts.
